The first test match between tourist Pakistand hosted by Engalnd cricket was held in Lord's yesterday.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq became the oldest player in 82 years to score a Test century as the 42-year-old hit an unbeaten 110 to put his side in a strong position on day one of the first Test against England.
Pakistan, who also had Asad Shafiq (73) to thank for digging them out of a spot of early bother, closed on 6-282 after choosing to bat and making England toil in the field for much of the day.
Yet two late wickets from Chris Woakes, who ended the opening day of play with figures of 4-45, lifted the hosts’ spirits.
Misbah celebrated his landmark by dropping to the Lord’s turf and doing push-ups.
Misbah enjoyed a fine partnership of 148 with Asad Shafiq until the stand was eventually ended by Woakes three overs before the close as Shafiq edged an attempted leave behind to wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.
England is yet to chase Pakistan's score.
